Extra dock lines are cleated, fenders surround our boat, our water tanks are full, batteries are fully charged.
We are about as prepared as we can be for Hurricane Earl, and yet forecasters still don't quite know what's going to happen when it reaches this far north.
It all depends upon a cold front that is moving from west to east. Will it push Earl out into the ocean? Will it move too slowly to do so? No one knows for sure yet, and so we prepare the best we can, keep a watchful eye on the weather, and wait.
